Portland Heat No Match For PDX Adult Soapbox Derby

Racers sped down Mount Tabor in the 19th Annual PDX Adult Soapbox Derby on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016.

The 2016 PDX Adult Soapbox Derby tore through Mount Tabor Park in Southeast Portland Saturday.

Racers found creative ways to stay cool like a homemade trident hose spraying water from a soapbox car. Temperatures reached the mid-90s.

Saturday was the 19th annual running of the soapbox derby, which awards prizes not just to the fastest cars, but also the most creative.
